A Spring Saturday with Sydney

My last post was a little somber so to brighten things up is a sampling of some spring  (I really tried on the alliteration, but an 's' word for fun didn't come to mind)

The blooms on my lemon tree are opening! The fragrance is a heady mix of spring floral with the promise of the sweet citrus to come.

Today we went to a birthday party for a little friend of ours.  Sydney and her little brother Jacob live next door to Madeleine and Cameron, and today was Sydney's birthday party.  Her mom asked me to make Sydney's cake, which I was happy to oblige.  Sydney is really into the Littlest Pet Shop right now, so that's what we went with:

The birthday girl and her cake!

The weather was gorgeous and the kids spent most of the time either in the playroom or outside in the bouncy castle.  Billa loves bouncy castles!


Because Sydney's birthday falls so close to Easter on some years, her parents did an egg hunt as part of the festivities!  We had so much fun and I don't know whether Billa enjoyed the eggs or the actual egg basket more...she picked out a Thomas the Tank Engine bucket to collect her eggs.

Billa loves opening eggs and seeing what's inside!

We hated to leave, but our two year old still needs a midday nap and I'd pushed it off long enough.  We had a wonderful time and I was very glad we got to partake in the beautiful spring Saturday!  It may not be official yet, but spring is definitely here in Central Texas.


Happy Saturday,
